There are worlds beyond your doors

and opportunities reaching out to you.

“Future” is such a big word,

and so is “college” if no one has been before.

But you have just as much right

to take those chances, as any one else.

Don’t doubt the power of your ability.

If you choose to do it,

are willing to put in the work,

you can do it:

break down stereotypes,

forge new ground,

accomplish something beyond

what judgmental people

think is all you can be.

What’s your dream?  Fight for it.

    Great piece, thank you

  2. Waiting, and doubting oneself, is an unnecessary burden upon the soul. Trust me, I’ve been there.

What do you think?
